The Roomba has a rechargable Battery. The Roomba battery like any battery will eventually ware out after so many charges and discharges. Mine lasted about three years and then is would hardly hold a charge. I purchased a new battery and then it worked fine after that.

As for not going forward. That is usually due to a dirty bumper sensor. You have to take the Roomba apart for cleaning that. You can take it to Sears and they will do it for you.

Amber flashing light while on home base. New, pulled tab, placed on dock. First time said charge err1, took out battery and replaced. Now just flashes amber. Is this correct?


Your manuals are here. Flashing lights must be covered. A quick look at the site says flashing red is bin full. In fact, I found it. Flashing Amber is CHARGING.

    IRobot 560 does not return back to the charging station as it runs out of battery after 1/2 hr. of cleaning.


    You need to put the charging station in an easily accessible area, since the roomba doesn't know where it is if it's in another room. The roomba needs to be quite close to it to be able to detect it. When its battery runs low the roomba will zigzag around at random until it detects the charging station.

    Roomba going in circles


    Roomba going in circles. Called irobot and if reseting it (by taking out the battery, unplugging it from the charger, and holding down the power button for 30 seconds), didn't work, turn the roomba over, take a compressor and blow air into the front. Maybe a shop vac would also work. We cleaned out the whole thing while we were at it. And now it works just fine. The tech person at irobot was very helpful.

    IRobot 530 charges intermittently


    Reset the Roomba: hold down "spot" and "dock/demo" for fifteen seconds, then release and listen for the tune. Then charge the Roomba overnight. The next time you run it, the unit should run longer. If not, call support and let them know you may have a battery problem. 1-877-855-8593 (I strongly encourage you to have the Roomba with you if you call.)

    Backs up spins in circles, then red light flashes and beeps


    Sounds like either the battery is bad or not being charged properly with subsequent loss of programming.

    Running backwards in circles.


    If your Roomba's speaker isn't working, you need a new Roomba regardless. Give a call to customer support (877-855-8593) and they'll help you out.
